New College is one of the largest and most architecturally striking colleges, with beautiful gardens and a variety of excellent facilities. We are very proud of our wonderful and diverse student body and encourage a friendly, open atmosphere throughout the college in which everyone can flourish both socially and academically.
The college has a rich musical tradition, in no small part due to our world famous chapel choir, and we celebrate music of all styles and eras. We have a college orchestra, a number of choral groups, and several practice rooms – including a dedicated ‘Band Room’.
New College also has fantastic sports facilities. Students can join one of our many teams, or just head down to the sports ground to play more casually.
Our students run a wide range of societies, from music and dance to drama and film – there’s something here for everyone!

New College is…
…a particularly musical college… the best decision I have made.
…more than its Hogwarts-like beauty. It looks like a castle but it’s definitely a home; there’s a really strong sense of community.
…driven but caring members of one very unique family, with a variety of talents and interests.
…lovely people and fantastic student support outside of the classroom.
